Moving On

As our last years of college started to wind down, my girlfriends and I swore that we'd all get jobs in St. Louis and continue our friendship in the "big city".  So, I was thrilled when I was offered a position working for a robotics company just outside of St. Louis. It's crazy to think that was five and a half years ago, and today will be my last day working for that company.

Looking back on the past five+ years, I realize how fortunate I have been to have landed this job. While there have been many trials (and I'll admit, even tears) over the past several years, I have also been provided with an outstanding opportunity to grow both professionally and personally. Back in 2011, I started here as a timid Purchasing Specialist. I quickly grew out of that timidness as I gained confidence in myself and my knowledge of the industry started to grow. Within two and a half years, I was promoted to Accounting Manager and always tried my best to prove myself worthy of that role.

Over the past couple years, I have been able to build a team that I am proud of and become a mentor to those who work for me. I have been able to further my accounting knowledge and become a valuable resource within the company. I have made lifelong friends. I feel that I have truly met all of the goals that I set for myself when I started my first "adult" job. So, with that, I know that it is now time for me to move on.

There are big changes coming my way and I couldn't be more excited to start this new adventure. I know that there is still so much for me to learn and I am eager to continue to grow my knowledge and my career. While the idea of starting over seems a bit scary, I just know that this leap of faith is going to bring great things.

Cheers to the next chapter of this crazy book called life!
